Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition). Knob Creek Bourbon was created by Beam’s grandson, Booker Noe, who after joining the family business in 1950 was promoted to Master Distiller just ten years later. Booker talked like a true Kentuckian and was known for his contagious personality, and through his launch of the “Small Batch Bourbon Collection” — the collection includes Knob Creek as well as Basil Hayden’s, Booker’s and Baker’s bourbons — he is often credited as the father of the small batch bourbon movement. Knob Creek Bourbon takes its name from the small water source, Knob Creek, that ran through President Abraham Lincoln’s childhood farm. Booker’s vision for Knob Creek Bourbon was that of an honest, quality bourbon that could meet the standards — strength, flavor, care, and patience — of bourbon made before prohibition distressed the industry just decades earlier. Like Abraham Lincoln himself, Booker designed Knob Creek Bourbon, to be honest, unwavering and full of character. Knob Creek offers a solid core lineup of whiskeys and bourbons, all of which have made the brand one of the most popular labels on the market today. Rye Whiskey has made a massive comeback in the industry in recent years, and Knob Creek’s small batch rye is a hallmark emblem of the resurgence of this born again fermented grain whiskey. With its expansive notes of herbs bold rye and nuanced elements of oak, and undertones of vanilla, it's no wonder that this rye is one of the most famous whiskeys to date. This exceptionally nuanced cask strength Knob Creek is one of the hitmakers. The whiskey was barreled in 2009, selected from Jim Beam’s legendary Warehouse A. Before its release, this exceptional rye received “Best in Category,” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Pick up your bottle today!

The palate is dense with vanilla, laced with a nuttiness and sugary notes, and a distinctive Kentucky rye style. The finish is oaky, subtle with a slight bite.
